Flower bunch 💐

107

Here is a flower bunch I panted on leather textured paperThis piece of paper is with me since my college days. Finally I used it after many years. Earlier I used to do my art assignments on this paper with Poster colors. They are opaque colors so this paper could easily handle multiple layers.

It was fun painting on different paper. Happy Weekend 😀

Today I have something different from watercolors, but it’s little interesting so thought of sharing with you.

I have wanted to do self-portrait illustration since long time. I took a Skillshare class of my favorite illustrator Ryan Putnam – Thanks Ryan for the class.

I always used pen tool for illustrations but in this case it was way faster and easier to use the line tool. My face is little oval and my dimples show when I smile. I emphasized these features in my avatar! It was fun trying variations almost in every single part right from eyes to hairstyle. I have used Sketch App for this illustration.

Below are the couple of iterations I went through.

These are the two semi finals I arrived at after hundreds of iterations 😆 lol

Finally I ended up with this one 😀

If you want to see more of my design work you can visit my portfolio here.

Actually I wanted to ask you guys, If you don’t mind can you please tell me How and Where do you sell your art online? I know few websites like ETSY but they support only limited countries like US, UK, Canada and few more. I’ve a plan of selling my watercolor prints, so just wanted to know more about it.

If you want you can email me on snehal.kank@gmail.com or you can just visit my contact page here.

Thank you so much for reading the long post. 🙂

These days I have decided to try to paint without pencil drawing. I mean skipping the drawing stage and start directly with paints. I was pretty happy with the results 😀

You can see the work in progress video clip on my Instagram Art a/c here.

I have bunch of used watercolor papers and I really don’t wanted to just throw them away. So I decided to use them with their backside. This one is painted with Sakura Koi colors on the back of the old painting.

I think it’s a good way to save papers and continue your quick practice work or some rapid doodles.  😉  😀  What say?

Today we got a couple of inches snow in Denver. I stared this painting yesterday, I couldn’t finish it. So I continued today on this cold day. It was snowing outside and I was painting these pretty flowers 😀

Few days back I came across beautiful white flowers clicked by my fellow blogger friend Pete Hillman. Pete’s nature photography is so inspiring, those pretty flowers inspired me to paint 😀 Thank you so much Pete for such a beautiful click and allowing me to paint them.

About illustration – I skipped the pencil drawing stage and jumped to paint the flowers, followed by stems. Later added green foliage. Instead of painting the flowers white I used blue colors for petals.

Thank you for stopping by!
